Patna High Court: The Patna High Court, while hearing the case of demolition of a woman’s house, has strongly reprimanded the Bihar Police. Justice Sandeep Kumar angrily remarked, “Who does the Bihar Police represent, the state or a private individual?” A spectacle has been made, will anyone’s house be demolished with bulldozers? Will the bulldozer work here too?
Actually, a case of demolition of a woman’s house has come to light in Bihar. In this matter, the court has now directed the Superintendent of Police, Circle Officer, Patna City and the officer in charge of Agamkuan Police Station to appear in the court during the next hearing. Because the court has found in the case that proper procedure has not been followed by the police. The house has been broken into illegally.
What is the whole matter of breaking the house?
Let us tell you that a woman had lodged a complaint against the station in-charge of Agamkuan police station located in Vijay Nagar, Patna. In this, he had alleged that at the behest of the land mafia, a false case was registered against his family members to vacate the land and a bulldozer was fired at his house. At the behest of these people, the police broke their house.
Next hearing of the case will be on December 8
This matter is of 15 October. The name of the woman who filed the petition is Sahyog Devi, whose house has been demolished. Now a separate hearing of this matter is to be held on December 8, in which all the police officers will appear in person. The video of this case also went viral on social media. Justice Kumar asked the police, “Who are these powerful people for whom you destroyed someone’s house using a bulldozer?” Whom do you represent?
Responsible officer will give 5 lakh rupees to the woman
The court also raised the question, “Whether the police station has also been given the power to settle land dispute cases?” If someone has any problem, will he go to the police station, give bribe and break someone’s house? Why don’t you close the court, the civil court?” The court also ordered that the responsible officer pay Rs 5 lakh to the victim. The woman’s lawyer says that the police has already made a mistake by registering a case against the accused.
